Local System Monitoring in QTP 10

Share This Post -
The new local system monitoring feature in QTP (File > Settings > Local System Monitor) enables you to monitor the local (client-side) computer resources used by the application instance you are testing during a run session.

You can monitor a number of different system counters to view the effects your application has on the system. You can also define upper limits for the counters. If any of the specified counters exceed these limits, the test run will fail.

Additionally, you can export the data from the System Monitor tab to a variety of file types.

The results generated for the counters you monitor are displayed as a line chart in a special System Monitor tab in the Test Results window.

The points in the chart are synchronized with the steps in the Run Results tree. When you select a step in the tree, the (red) Current Step line jumps to the corresponding location in the chart.

You can also export the data from the chart so it can be further analyzed in other programs.
